     1    Section 1. Section 14-130 of the election law, as added by chapter 152
     2  of the laws of 1985, is amended to read as follows:
     3    § 14-130. Campaign funds for personal use. Contributions received by a
     4  candidate or a political  committee  may  be  expended  for  any  lawful
     5  purpose.  Such  funds shall not be converted by any person to a personal
     6  use which is unrelated to a political  campaign  or  the  holding  of  a
     7  public office or party position.  No campaign funds shall be used to pay
     8  attorney's  fees or any costs of defending against any civil or criminal
     9  action, investigation or prosecution for alleged violations of state  or

    10  federal  law  alleged  to  have been committed by a candidate, public or
    11  party official, members of their immediate family  or  domestic  partner
    12  unless  such  expenditure is used exclusively for costs related to civil
    13  actions instituted pursuant to article sixteen of this chapter.
    14    § 2. This act shall take effect on the sixtieth  day  after  it  shall
    15  have  become a law; provided, however, that the state board of elections
    16  shall notify  all  registered  campaign  committees  of  the  applicable
    17  provisions  of  this  act  within  thirty days after this act shall have
    18  become a law.
